areas. one, financial planning going forward at the departments and number two, missile defense and our ability to defend the homeland. i want to start that much discussion about sequestration that the current budget and the department will hope fully in the month of may comply with the scots that present short-term challenges of long-term challenges. in addition, they contemplate a renew commission process going forward. i would suggest of assessing sequestration in the short-term and long-term and cannot brac process that a component should conclude consideration to the degree with which we can reduce the prance overseas, reduce bases overseas command manpower overseas, consistent with essential imperative for national security. the first question i wanted to ask secretary hagel as to what extent is the department complying with these financial pressure is our ability to drive down overseas footprints. referable to reduce overseas and here at home if it can be done consistently national security and to what extent is it apart and engaged right now in that assessment and analysis? >> t
that we have provided by the department of defense. if that changes, we will have to look and see if we can accommodate that change, and if not, then we will have to say we have a requirement for resources. >> thank you very much, and i look forward to sitting down with you to look at the matrix that brought about such a change in three months, and let me just say, mr. secretary, i was not addressing the increased number of claims coming in the door, i was addressing the number of claims that are actually processed and determined, and that does not seem to be getting better. >> thank you. >> thank you, mr. chairman. i will try to ask two questions in too short a period of time. it's homelessness on the one hand, suicides on the other. how do you pick the tragedy, the worst tragedy? let me22 suicides a day. just concentrate on that for a second. you are making an enormous move in mental health, bringing in the experts and the support staff. it will take time to get that into the system and trained, too. how do you look at the general population, starting with ptsd, and as it gets into th
't allow. and i'm not blaming the lawyer. my goodness, if i were his defense lawyer, you wouldn't ask him one thing without my permission and you would have to give a lot to get an answer to anything. all i'm suggesting is that we're at war, these two people fit the profile of folks who are trying to kill us, they're tied to overseas organizations potentially. why in the world can't our country have some time with this person in the national security legal system to find out about what he knows and how they planned this attack to make the rest of us safer? i believe in due process. and he in that system can go to a judge and say, i'm not an enemy combat expent the government would have to -- combatant and the government would have to prove you are. so he has due process there. but here's what i believe deeply, and then i'll turn it over to senator eye i can't telw hampshire. i believe the closer to get to your homeland, the more rights we have as a people to defend ourselves. i don't want a police state. i don't want to live in ath a country where you can't express who you are and what yo
defense authorize act of 2012 which specifically bars trying american citizens in military tribunals. >> now, pete, there is -- there is some doubt that we will have the charges made officially released today. why? >> i don't know the exact why. we'll know here a little while. we expected them saturday. we expected them sunday. we'll see whether we get them today. there's still some issues they're trying to resolve here. and i just don't know specifically what they are. at first i thought it was merely a drafting issue. but i think it's clearly beyond that. i don't know if it's a legal question. i don't know if it's an evidentiary issue of what they're trying to put into the complaint. we'll just have to wait and see. >> and one more piece of information that's been floating around. his mother has claimed the fbi made contact with one or both of the tsarnaev brothers before thursday night. any truth to this? >> everybody i've talked to, including the fbi, says none whatsoever. >> so these are just his mother making claims that -- unsubstantiated at best? >> it's certainly -- it's sim
. it's an affirmative defense on an evidentiary point. >> so your point is, just so i can clarify, your point is, we can still very likely put this guy in jail, or get the death penalty, whatever we decide. we may not need any of these statements against him in court. why not interrogate him for public safety reasons longs as long as we want? >> jay is right. the guy confessed in the carjacking. the terror suspect confessed to being the boston bomber. tim think mcveigh was mirandized. there isn't a problem here, which is why i'm surprised that senator graham, senator mccain and others would be looking to create a political issue in a way that looks to be, maybe they may not be intending this, looks to be grandstanding. >> what they say, julian, i heard senator graham earlier, they said the public safety issue is limited in time. maybe you only have 48 hours after he -- he said they need 30 days. they need a long time to come up with their questioning. clearly we have more to discuss. that's important. we'll hold you over and pick it up on the other side. >> all right.
